I think it may be time to redeem what is considered one of the most unredeemable places in ddo (next to the poll section and art forum) we should revive the religion forum and make intelligent discussion the normal there.

Is that actually possible?
Lol. I've seen it compared to "moldy bleach with a hint of pepper and morphine." I'm not sure you can redeem that.

But, that's exactly where you do find intelligent discussion, you just won't find it from the side of the believers, which of course is not something you or anyone else is ever going to change. Believers post from arguments of ignorance, personal incredulity, confirmation bias, special pleading and strawmen, to name a few, only they can change the way they post.

If anything, work needs to be done on the Science forum, which has turned into little more than a place for cranks and crackpots to post their flat earth garbage or believers posting their denials/rejection of science, facts and evidence.

There are certainly some like that, if not most but not all and it's the same with non believers

I agree with this

It would be hard and would require moderator and members to work together.

Yeah, science forum gets a lot of 'drive by sermons'. Some one busts in, rapid fires a few crackpot theories/science bashing and returns to the hive site to find a more baffling rationalization.

There is a lot of meta thinking in religious forums. It can take a lot of effort to untangle the latest baffle with BS explanation.

Smart people are great at coming up with smart reasons to believe whatever the hell they want to.

And, here we have the latest contribution to the Science forum, a new low...

Lol. We should actually have a separate religion forum moderator.
